Aston Villa vs Everton Betting Tips
Although they’ve met dozens of times in history, Aston Villa and Everton didn’t play one another even once in the last three years. The reason is obvious – the Villans were absent from the English top flight. But, they’re back now, after winning the promotions play-offs in May. The success brought them a lot of money, which they spend on making many signings. However, that hasn’t improved their chances of finishing above the relegation zone at the end of the season. Actually, Aston Villa are still among the biggest relegation favorites according to major bookies.
So far, they haven’t done much to prove the bookies wrong. Aston Villa have lost both of their Premier League matches in the new season. It all started with a loss to Tottenham in London in the first round. In that match, the Villans showed their teeth and were the better team for a significant part of the match. Actually, they’re the ones who got in the lead in the first half. A similar thing happened in the second round, in which they lost to Bournemouth. Even though they had almost two times more goal attempts than the opponent, the ball simply refused to go across the goal line more than once.
Everton, on the other hand, have managed to collect four points from the first two rounds. Although no one can say that the Toffees were impressive in those matches, it does look like they’re heating up. With a couple of big signings they made over the summer, they now look pretty strong in all areas of the pitch. Still, they haven’t yet shown their attacking proves. The game with Crystal Palace in the opening round finished without goals, while their win over Watford saw only one goal. And that goal was scored early on, after which, the Toffees didn’t have too many goal attempts. Actually, apart from the goal scored in 10th minute of the game, they only had one more shot on goal for the entire 90 minutes.
